Let's do a virtual crossword puzzle! OK, building on Peseta....

E is the first letter, 6 letters down including the E, clue is:

Tall tourist attraction in a popular French city.

You guess, and then build on what we have so far, offering a clue for a new word.

The only rule: All answers must be travel related. (Hope this works, could be fun!)

OK, now building on the word, Mousse, use the u and fill in the word for the clue
Instead of a fourway stop, the European use a ---------- at their intersections.

Scarlett,

More specifics might help people envision an actual crossword puzzle (number of letters, which letter you are building on from the previous word, the position of the letter you are building on, etc):

Example:

So it's a 6 letter word, built on the second E in Eiffel, with the E in your word being the last letter...

And your clue was: Usually chocolate.

And now wren has guessed and then built on that word...how many letters, wren? And what position is the 'u' in your new word?

OK, I'll bite...

Roundabout

ok, this is two words, but not using any gaps between the words...

This builds on the B in roundabout. The B is the first letter of the first word, the first word is 7 letters, then NO GAP between the words, 2nd word is 5 letters, so 12 letters in all.

Clue is: Refreshing necessity in warmer destinations and on long hikes
